Phillip Lee Biermann, 69, of Belleville, IL, passed away on July 18, 2020, at Memorial Hospital, Belleville, IL.

Phil was born March 26, 1951 in Sparta, IL, to Oscar J. and Mary Biermann. He was a wonderful father and grandfather. Phil was someone who would dream big and had a larger than life personality. He enjoyed all things sports and was a devoted football, basketball, track and baseball star. He continued to play softball for many years and found great joy in doing so. The only thing he loved more than playing sports was watching his children and grandchildren play sports. Phil was an encourager and believed in his children and grandchildren and constantly showed them. He was happy and full of life despite many of life’s great challenges. Phil always had a joke to tell and could always get that sale made. He will dearly be missed by so many. We are sure he will continue to be rooting us all on forever like he always did.

Phil was preceded in death by his father, Oscar John Biermann; his mother, Mary Elizabeth, nee Thompson, Griebel; and his step brother-in-law, Ralph Rabe.

Surviving are his children, Terica (Andy) English of O’Fallon, IL,
and Kyle (Sarah) Biermann of Belleville, IL,
the mother of his children, Kathy, nee Wagner, Biermann, whom Phil was married to for 37 years;
six grandchildren, R Bennett, Jadeyn, Cortland, Maddox, Paxton, and Emersyn English;
his step-father, Ralph Griebel;
his step siblings, Kevan (Carol) Griebel, and Renda Rabe;
and many cousins, nieces, and a nephew.
